Tax included.

The world of Professional Wrestling is filled with strong larger than life personalities. One of the most flamboyant characters from the 70’s and 80’s with out a doubt would have to be Adrian Street and Mrs Linda. They were quite a duo to be messed with during their major run in the 80’s thru our all of the major territories. Adrian also has a very high opinion of himself which makes the interview very enjoyable at times to listen to him speak about his different runs over the years wether in be in Memphis TN, Florida, NWA, over seas and many of the other great wrestling territories throughout the 80’s that he worked.

Adrain talks about getting into the business as a teenager. How did he turn into such a exotic character and why did his family try to keep him down? What did Adrain think of the Stu Hart Dungeon and who did he not get along with right off the bat in Canada. Did he like to wrestle in Mexico and how did he adjust to that style. Adrain worked also on the West Coast as well and he recounts his travels with Miss Linda thru out the Western wrestling companies as well as working for the Labelles.

Why did he not like wrestling in Memphis and what was Jerry Lawler and Jerry Jarrett like to work for. What was Jim Cornette like as a young rookie. You will hear about how political that locker room was as well. One of his best times was when he worked down in Florida for Eddie Graham. He talks about his feuds with Dusty Rhodes, Magnum TA, Barry Whindham. What happened back stage when Ric Flair over heard Adrain Street talking about not letting Flair go to town on him in the ring?

We must talk about SouthWest Championship wrestling as well as all the greats from that promotion like Tully and Gino. Adrain talks about what it was like to work for a bully in Cowboy Bill Watts company. We also talk all about his career in the music world and his almost fist fight with Randy Savage in Memphis. If your a fan of Adrian Street we asked him about every company that he has worked for and your going to love this Exotic shoot interview.
